Organization Details

  • Organization Name:Railway Children India NGO
  • About Organization:Vision We believe in a world where no child ever has to live on the streets. Mission We create and enable sustainable change in the lives of children living on the streets. We do this in three ways: 1) On the streets - We seek to reach a child on the streets before abusers, drug dealers and traffickers do. Finding them shelter, food and support is the first step. 2) In communities - We work with families, neighbours and wider communities to raise awareness, change perceptions and to help all children get the support they need to stay safe. 3) With Governments - If the system doesn’t change, nothing does. We lobby governments, pressurise and campaign until we get the policy changes that keep children safe, well and off the streets forever. Values Effectiveness - Our work is constantly judged on results and impact and then assessed to ensure maximum return on investment, both in our programme outputs and financially. Every penny of donors’ money is invested with
